Foreign Affairs Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne says Canadians who want to leave Japan where they were stuck on board a quarantined cruise ship, can begin the process of taking a chartered jet today evening.

That could mean they will be back in Canada on Friday, when they will be taken to a hotel in Cornwall, Ontario for another two-weeks' isolation.

About 500 healthy passengers have been allowed to leave the Diamond Princess.

The 47 Canadians who have symptoms of COVID-19 will have to stay in Japan for treatment.
